Comprised of twenty immersive, hyper-realistic scenarios delivered over a two-day period, this multi-disciplinary approach to medical patient simulation includes the departments of EMT, Fire Science and Paramedicine, Theatre and Film Arts, Psychology, Public Safety, Nursing, and Medical Students from Midwestern University -- Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine.

The Theatre and Film Arts Department participation is a foundational resource in ITPME, providing dramatic real-life representation of patient-based scenarios as well as realistic scripting, moulage of the actors, and the setting of the scene.
